  1. @scribus Is it the same song as SEAGULLS! (Stop it Now), the bad lip-reading song of Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back?

  2. I've replaced 20 LED bulbs as the short of my previous ones was scary. Because of a voltage transformer inside the old ones and the usage of a electrolytic capacitor in that transformer AND it being cooked inside the metal casing the capacitor leaked and corroded all contacts extremely and the transformer shorted out. I had to replace the whole lamp because the contacts became unusable. Now I have over a dozen working and yet stupidly constructed LED bulbs. Good for emergencies but too bad for everyday use.

  5. @scribus It's cool that there is a cheap solution but I rather pay triple that for a proper one with a bigger volume and higher resolution.

  6. @mrmattimation Pinky and the Brain operate from a well-established formula and it s not very surprising that their segment is the more consistent one. I still agree that they were mostly the better part of the show.

  7. I think it was a bad idea mixing all my different kinds of teas. It's the weirdest blend of tastes.

  8. @scribus I just watched all the 13 episodes. It's good. Not overwhelmingly good. Good good. Some jokes and segments were not to my own taste but the rest was good 'ol fun.

  12. Oh boy. I search for a new laser printer for my parents as theirs refuse to cooperate. The exact model I own is now about 100€ more expensive than I bought it over a year ago. WTF.

  16. @scribus I have absolutely no idea what I've exactly bought with it. It's fricking 17 years ago haha. I didn't have much fun collecting money like a numismatic. Videogames are my jam since my parents bought a C64 and sold it, and got IBM(-compatible) machines. As for the game I bought it could have been anything. I'm only sure that's still in my possession and probably a PC game. Outcast, You don't know Jack, Rollercoaster Tycoon, Airline Tycoon, Civilization Call To Power...

  17. @thismightbeauser There are different images on the back of the coins. Each country has a different set of images on their coins. When the Euro was introduced to the public in 2002 a lot of people tried to collect all the different coins. I had almost a complete set but I was fed up and used the money to buy a game at the flea-market.

  18. Prepared the calendar for printout. My mother still uses a physical calendar for everything. She wants a month view with as big boxes for each day as possible to write in. Also Monday as the first day, and Saturday and Sunday in red. All commercial calendars do not support her needs. Luckily this exists https://texample.net/tikz/examples/birthday-calendar/ With some adjustments I could customize it enough to make her happy.

  19. I've seen a bunch more benchmarks and my view hasn't changed much but it's more competitive as the first review I've seen has indicated. However there were reported weirdness from the drivers. For creative people it might be a hard decision as NVidia cards seem to be more stable and better supported by such software. However for video editing the extra VRAM might be mighty beneficial. It's a tough decision this time but I'm leaning more towards NVidia at the moment although they are slightly more expensive. When the hardware shortages and availability improves it might also improve on the AMD side. At this time I can only save money and drink a lot of tea waiting and observing.

  21. Oof. The Radeon 6800(XT) benchmarks look rough. Fair but not as competitive as I wished it to be. As it looks right now I rather wait when NVidia cards are readily available and have a little bit more of VRAM.

  22. Last week I wanted to use the laser cutter of my local maker space, however due to everything happening it's closed. I wanted to make 32 custom comic short boxes out of 3mm MDF.

  26. @scribus I'm glad my monitor has an integrated USB hub. I have a mouse, keyboard, scanner, drawing tablet, VR headset, and an external HDD, a microphone, and a webcam attached to almost all available ports of the whole system. I use the front ones occasionally for the SD card reader. So I'm pretty much maxed out.

  28. It depresses me that there are less and less new PC cases with space for optical drives (CD/DVD/BluRay). I'm starting to look around for a new PC. As my PC is older and my case has only USB2 ports and an unreliable headphone jack, as well as showing wear I want a new one. My current case is from Cooler Master from 2006.
